The Governing Body has a responsibility to ensure that the school, as a Roman Catholic Primary School, is effectively led and managed to meet the needs of the pupils, the expectations of our Catholic parents and the interests of the wider community and parish. They have particular responsibilities in relation to leading school improvement, the development of the curriculum, monitoring of standards in all areas of school life, the appointment of staff and admissions to school.

The governers meet at least once a term to discuss a report from the headteacher as well as monitoring, evaluating and discussing other apsects of school business. The minutes of these meetings are available in school for parent’s and are available upon request. The subcommittees also meet usually once a term to discuss specific areas of school life.

The Chair of the Governing Body is Mr Kevin Morrissey and he can be contacted C/o the school address.

 

Governor Profiles

 

Mary Ingram

I am very pleased to serve on the governing body as a Foundation Governor. I was appointed in May 2016. As a parent and grandparent I recognise the importance of enabling all children to reach their potential. I will do my best to assist the staff and other governors of Holy Cross and All Saints RC School to achieve this.

 

Christine Palmer

I am an ex pupil of the school and live in the parish of Holy Cross, St Gilberts and St Matthew.  I have worked at  Holy Cross and All Saints since 1992 and am employed as the School Business Manager.

I took up my position as Non-Teaching Staff Governor in 2010. I attend full governing body meetings three times a year, and I also sit on the Finance, Pay and Premises Committee. Being a governor at the school is a serious role which I enjoy and I will always have the best interest of the school at heart.

 

Sheila Entwistle

I am a member of the Parish and was appointed a Foundation Governor in July 2015. My four grown up children have benefited from a Catholic education. I have worked in Further Education, for the past 23 years, assessing and teaching students with learning difficulties and disabilities, specialising in dyslexia.

I want to use my personal and professional experience of education, in my role as a governor, to act in the best interest of all the pupils. I hope to assist and support the Head Teacher and staff in giving all our children the best education with a productive, challenging and happy environment that allows them to nourish and develop their talents and achieve their full potential.

 

Moya Shannon

After previously serving as a governor from 1997-2007 I was very pleased to re-join the governing body as a Foundation Governor in May 2015. As a qualified Librarian and Teacher my particular expertise is in developing literacy skills.  I was born and brought up in the parish of Holy Cross and I am an active member of the parish community.  It is a privilege to be able to use my experience, skills and abilities to help further the education of our children.

 

Emma Gough

I am the parent of children who have previously attended and are currently attending Holy Cross and All Saints.

Over the years I have volunteered at school, listening to the children read on a weekly basis and helping plan and organise school events as part of the PTFA on a regular basis, this has enabled me to see and experience firsthand our vibrant and diverse school environment.

Contributing in these ways has encouraged me to become a parent governor, a role I started in September 2015, I offer my support to all the staff in establishing a stimulating, caring and safe environment in order to help encourage learning and to allow the children to develop to their full potential.

 

Governance Information

 

All the governors and associate members of Holy Cross and All Saints RC Primary School  have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school.

 

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first.

 

If there is a potential conflict it is shown in the table. This table also shows the category of governor each person is, any specific role on the governing body and the committees they are members of.

 

More information about the requirements to complete and sign the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests can be found on Salford City Council’s Governor Services web pages at http://www.salford.gov.uk/schoolgovernors.htm where you will also find the links to all the other local authority’s (LA) governing bodies’ personal, pecuniary or business interests registers.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school;
  • staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;
  • foundation governors are appointed by Bishop John Arnold from the Diocese of Salford and may be removed by the Bishop of Salford (or any other person exercising Ordinary jurisdiction on his behalf).
  • local authority(LA) governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body;
  • the Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
  • associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may been given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body.
  • The different committees our governing body has are:

  • Finance and Premises Committee
  • Curriculum, Pupils and Admissions Committee
  • There are also separate disciplinary and appeals committees which are convened if they are required.
